King James VI was king of Scotland (born 1566, died 1625) and was granted the throne (of Scotland) in 1567, but didn't take it until the age of 19. On the death of Elizabeth I, he also became King of England. It was King James who commissioned translation of The Bible into what was the English of the time, so that the Bible could be understood by the common people as well as the educated. Part of the aim was also to provide a single, uniform translation for use throughout the Church of England. It was published in 1611. King James died in 1625.
